Yes ladies and gentlemen, the unthinkable has happened. The Sims are coming to the home console. In a press release issued mere moments ago, EA has announced that The Sims 3 will be coming to the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, as well as the Nintendo DS.
Hopefully since its the PS3 and xbox 360 that they can do a 'real' sims game on the consoles - a straight PC port. Will be interesting to find out. If its anything like the sims 2 on PS2 then no thanks. Sims 1 was decent
lol u do realize this is gonna fail right? Some games are meant to be played ONLY on the pc. Yes, there r other handheld versions of it but by far, the pc version is the best.
Gimmu waba sim sim - Translates to fail.
Should work great with the PS Move.
FAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This isn't a straight port. It is a spin off for EA to milk.
They announced this ages ago however we will probably get yet another crappy console port. I would like a real port with a decent house builder as thats the best and only fun part about sims.
I might still get it for pc if the console version is watered down
Pseronally not a fan of the Sims games...however...it'll be interesting to see what support, if any, the 360/PS3 will get in terms of adding custom content from the internet, as adding objects/items/characters that people have created seems to be one of the big draws for the Sims franchise
EA already announced a few months ago that SIMs would be coming to the console.
anyway i'll pass
it'd be fun if it was MMO :P
They did that already and it bombed pretty hard.
sony should have dun this with HOME. *looks at the sims and looks at HOME*SEES SIMILARITIES HOME would be epic if it was like the sims.take your HOME avatar and incorporate the real world interactions with the megalomaniac features of the sims. it would be huge.it would be like a MMORPG.AND IT COULD WORK.your neighbourhood limited to 20 of your friends in a game of keeping up with the jones's.biggest house wins. fvuk im good.id play it
In home your character is your avatar. In Sims your character is like artificial A.i. that you have to take care of and mold. In home it's socializing. In The Sims it's a life simulation game, like a virtual pet. Although i see the success in this, the point of home was gamer socialization and customizable avatars and spaces. Like a social network.
Let's just have a straight port, and none of the stupid objective based nonsense of the past.
This going to be 10 time worse than PC version.
especially if it's a multiplayer online! I got Sims 3 already...I don't play it too much, only cuz m on my consoles majority ov tha time. It's fun ta play actually, m sure it's gonna sell well, tha casuals r gonna eat this up, n since I gotta casual gamer in me..I'll b 1 ov em. Game on!
I hope that the X360 & PS3 versions are straight ports of the PC version of The Sims 3.. That'd be awesome! :)
awesome. that is all.
nice,hope it doesnt get carried away with the DLC
..of course it will.
Isn't going anywhere near mine.
"Yes ladies and gentlemen, the unthinkable has happened. The Sims are coming to the home console." Actually, there are already many Sims games on consoles and handhelds. Sims 2, Sims 2 Castaway, The Urbz Sims, etc. So its not really surprising that Sims 3 would eventually make it to consoles as well.
But the sims on consoles aren't all that good, especially after you've played the sims2 on pc vs the sims 2 on console, no mods,no expansion packs,no console,wayyyy better community support Im sorry guys, also the sims doesnt require you to get a high end gaming pc, get your laptop, and compare both on either system, you will see what i mean Also, if your gonna start bashing on my comment without good feedback, you my friend need help,as everything i stated are FACTS......Thank you
are you referring to the previous generation of consoles? this is the first sims on the 360/ps3. Uhm, thanks to live and psn why would community support be an issue? i can see mods being an issue,but is that really going to damage the game?the controls is the only issue. they probably wont allow keyboard and mouse support. but the controls work fine, it might be not as liberating as mouse and keyboard but its not inaccessible.
they also can do kb and mouse support on ps3 i heard microsoft dont allow that thougth
It probably won't be as fun as the PC version, but I'm sure it will do well since it's only the best selling game ever.
Very good! I actually enjoyed Sims 2...it's the last one I played. Hopefully Sims 3 on the consoles will be nice.
chazjamie unreal tournement 3 had mouse and keyboard support on ps3 but micrsoft would not allow it on 360. iam sure if they not just trying to cash in the franchise then could add keybaord and mouse support.
i really hope they do.
My daughter is gonna be delighted with this news......i'm not kidding.
yesterday for 4 hours i got my level 3 so you buy home my game closed as i saved it oh i was mad lol ,but sims 3 has problems watch ea charge for more stuff from pc version as dlc
It runs like sh1t this game, even on a good PC, I hate to see how it performs on the PS3, being it will be a bad port and all. The 360 version will be the one to get for sure.
this is what they need more of on consoles, simulation games instead of all these action ones. i use to spead hours on end playin simcity2000 on ps1. one game im hoping for on ps3 (but certain it wont happen) is citiesxl with kb/mouse support. or somethin similar.
That mongoloid, Will Wright just about ruined my marriage with that lousy game about doing things virtually that you hate doing in real life. Stupid B!tch would play that game 24 hours a day, and then she would complain about cleaning the house and all the things she has "fun" doing in the Sims!!
